I'm in a "friends" kind of mood and thought that my card today was very fitting.


I used a brand new set from the 2010 Occasions Mini Catalog and it will be available Jan. 5th. 
 It's the Vintage Vogue stamp set and it's truly a beautiful set!!

I stamped the background images with Old Olive ink onto Certainly Celery cardstock.
The "friends" was stamped with Chocolate Chip ink on Very Vanilla Cardstock.
 I sponged the edges with Chocolate Chip Ink.

I love making simple & quick cards!!

I appreciate all your prayers and I'm so thankful for the stories you've shared with me.
  It truly helps to know I'm not in this boat alone and that you really do understand.
On a lighter note, Dave is almost back to normal …….. besides the fact that he can't drive for 6 weeks and needs a walker to get around.

Have a great day & thanks for joining me!
